CAS brings new content and search precision options for Formulation IP searching to STNext
Recorded STN e-Seminar
During this webinar you will get a better understanding of the content and search capabilities for formulation IP searching in CASFORMULTNS, a recently added database produced by CAS to STNext. Using specific search fields and proximity operators, users can now significantly increase the precision of their formulation searches. Out of a single publication (patent, journal article or DailyMed product insert) multiple formulation definitions are manually curated. You will see how to search for combinations of substances to their function in the formulation and their optionality. The location of the formulation (claims, examples, tables, supplemental information) can also be defined. Several case studies will also show how to combine the results of a structure search in CAplus and Marpat with additional compounds in a formulation. An example will show how to approach compounds with a variable alkyl chain, commonly used in formulations. For IP searchers mainly in agrochemicals, the well-known issues of finding mixtures of actives can now be improved resulting in a significant reduction of the post-processing time of manual relevance checking.
